MLK Keynote Address – Dr. Mark Lomax II
400: An Afrikan Epic
A concert/lecture

Dr. Mark Lomax, II, is a critically acclaimed composer, recording artist, drummer, activist, and educator. A highly sought-after lecturer, Lomax specializes in the socio-political, and spiritual aspects of African-American art music, race, and using the arts to build community. Lomax released 400: An Afrikan Epic in January 2019, telling the story of the Afrikan diaspora through music. Divided into thirds, the Epic explores thousands of years of the history that is pre-colonial Afrika, the Ma’afa (400 years between 1619 and 2019), and Afro-futurism expressing a vision of what Blacks in America will heal toward in the next 400 years. Lomax also calls 400: An Afrikan Epic, an opportunity to celebrate the resilience, brilliance, strength, genius, and creativity of a people who continue to endure while offering a transformative view of the future.
